Check out my SmartRoller Site!

IMG_2194It is getting darker and colder…but this doesn’t change the fact that I still want to get up early for FOOD!

On a celebrity note I have become the face of the Smartroller so check out MY site!  I am a little backed up with signing autographs as my paws are tired.  I know Mom brags about her friend Stacy and this roller she invented which helps her back, neck, hips but it’s really all about me.  When Mom is not using it I use it to stretch my legs since chasing squirrels can get tiring.

Mom, Dad and I finished up the 1,200 Thanksgiving cards and sent them out. It was fun especially when I got into a few and dragged them into the backyard. So if you are one of the lucky ones with my mark congratulations.

We will be busy for the next few weeks as we are trying to prepare for the holidays. I am starting to understand what this hustle and bustle is all about. We are always on the go.

On that note I would encourage all of you to pick up A Healthy Baker’s Dozen not only as gifts but for yourselves. There are great gluten-free cookie recipes and even a healthy dog recipe for all me fellow canines out there.  Mom has yet to bake me some this year but I know the ingredients are in the house so hopefully soon!

OK, I need to crawl back under the blanket as I am getting a little chilled and I do not want the parentals to try to dress me up with another outfit like Halloween.

On the political front the race continues to ebb and flow and yes Trump’s hair is still there. But what has been more fun to watch is all the stuff about the red cup at Starbucks. I would love to just tear into one.

The fall temp in Santa Monica was a blustery 65 degrees today.  We actually had to turn on the heat tonight – something that has not happened here for many moons!



Zade and Me

IMG_2799Halloween came and went and the count down towards Turkey day is on.

Today godchild Zade came over for his first official Trick or Treat outing. He is now walking or should I say running and I had to pull hard on the leash to keep up with him. He was very cute as he was trying to trade what he had for what a person was trying to give him.  I’m hoping his spirit of giving continues so I can have more treats.

Of course I wore my scary skeleton costume that glows in the dark and yes the people wanted pets and gave me the accolades that I so deserve.  I tried to get out of the dress up thing but Dad said if I wanted to go trick or treating with Zade I had to “participate.”

Mom has been working on her MI stuff. She is going to start doing webinars that will help people continue to learn and brush up on there Motivational Interviewing skills from their home. Great idea…learning about reflective listening all the while wearing your pajamas.


Dad has been busy with long days at work so I have had a chance to go to the club to visit my friends –better than sitting at home since my own company is sometimes boring. However, I can now report I am up to five and half hours by myself not in the crate. I hear them talk about how I am growing up and becoming a big dog.

The weather has been windy in the Santa Monica and the warm temps continue to be in the 80’s so hopefully we will actually have a fall and not just skip to winer.

Oh yeah the time change should be a fun adjustment for the parentals as I am up before the crack of dawn – I figured breakfast now starts at 5 am, right?


Back from my Trip!

IMG_2789It has been a long time People! I almost forgot my writing stuff when I was in the country for a couple of weeks.

You may know that the parental units had a conference in Germany so while they were gone I got a vacation from THEM. It is always nice to be able to run in the country and hang out with my friends. I even lost some weight, showing how even canines can lose weight given the right amount of activity and I don’t even need a FibBit!

Speaking about loss we lost a couple of family members, Grandma Dopart and Aunt Mary within 2 weeks time. This has been a sad time so I have been giving Mom extra snuggles to comfort her.  Mom told me Grandma would always ask how the “puppy” was – little did she realize I am beyond the size of any puppy!

This week I have been doing better with my interior barking at the outside dogs. There was a couple of times that the neighbor dog, Henry, my new nemesis was peeing on my bushes in the front and I did not bark.

Dad was excited and gave me one of the Dental Bones from Mercola, which is not only tasty but healthy for my teeth. Little does he know I am really training him! WINK!  I stole the box off the counter and Mom caught me but I was disappointed there was none left so helpfully they will buy me more.

The weather continues on a schizophrenic course of being hot and humid. Maybe we will not have fall?

OK folks, have a great week and remember to be safe and responsible this Halloween. I am saying ahead of time I will not dress up this year and if Dad tries to put a costume on me again I will hide in rebellion.

Happy Fall!




Squirrel Fallon in my Mouth

PerrystaringThis week has been an awesome week PEOPLE!

I have been on the move more lately as Dad is gaining strength and started walking more. Thank goodness for Mom as she continues to walk me in the mornings, and I am trying my hardest not to pull. This becomes difficult when I see my friends and this week Boris’s Mom was walking him and I practically jolted across the street – Mom was not a happy camper.

The weather has continued to be a too hot for my liking. Today in Santa Monica it was 85 degrees with almost 80% humidity.

Even with the hot weather I have to share with you how exciting my week was. So I was hanging out by the back door looking quietly and intently at something outside. Dad opened the door and instead of bolting out as usual I went very slowly…almost crawling.

With my military style, focused eyes and stealth position, I waited and waited. Then I pranced and that stupid PITA squirrel tried to jump higher on the tree upside down and FELL right into my mouth.  I was elated for a whole second but then freaked out and that thing got away!

I knew right then that I had scarred that little fur thing because it panted and was out of breath and stood motionless in the tree.

Of course this made me bark like crazy, which in return made Dad crazy. He said something like, “Do you think that squirrel is gong to come down and jump back in your mouth?”

I was worried the squirrel was tweeting to his squirrel world to stay away from me but maybe less PITA activity in the yard is a good change of pace.

Even though it wasn’t a full capture I hope I showed that PITA whose yard it is and the score is turning….

Perry – almost 1 …PITA almost dead!

The GOP debate got heated this week – maybe even more than our house was with the humidity! I’m still the undecided voter and just enjoying all the funny interviews on Jimmy Fallon this week – it you haven’t seen the Trump and Clinton segments you’ve really missed out!

Have a great week peeps!



Hot, Hotter and Hottest…

PerrySmartrollerThis weather is absolutely horrendous PEOPLE!

Our house remains an oven with temperatures in the high 80’s at night, and 90’s during the day. Maybe we should start sleeping outside.

All I have wanted to do is lay around the house, pant and eat ice cubes.  Mom tried to get me to do my Smartroller today to feel better but I just could not muster the energy.

It is too hot to write this and the debates aren’t till Wednesday so stay tuned.

I need to get Dad up and outside to hose me down.

Love and Coolness,


Perry, Peace and Politics

Finally it’s a little cooler! I have had a big week and have a few things to report.

First, we have a new intern, Jess, who is really cool and I have a little crush on her. I am branching out as she is a brunette and as we all know I have a thing for blondes.

Mom still continues to take me on longer walks. However, I sometimes get two walks because in the evening we go again and Dad can now go around the block. Things are looking up.

JessandPerryAs for news – tis the season of politics and here’s my quick commentary on it all.

Hillary better get a jogging pant suit so she can pick up the pace and pull away from Bernie and her server as they are fast approaching.

Jeb might need a little energy drink and an ice pack from the hair lashing he got from Trump.

Potential Doctor President candidate has a dry sense of humor, and he’s catching up to Trump’s hair.

PerrySocksAll in all it seems that the unlikely hoods are racing to the top of the polls as America’s thirst for realism outweighs usual politics. Has reality TV crossed over to Washington?  Sit tight as it should be a fun CNN debate.

As you can see I have my socks on to wade through it all.

Please continue to pray for the safety of those who serve and protect our country. All lives matter in this world.

The weather in Santa Monica was a pleasant 75 degrees today.

Slow, Hot and Political

PerryhotAs summer is trying to wind down it continually feels like a hairdryer is blowing in my face…ALL THE TIME…and I don’t even have Trump hair.

Even my nemesis, PITA, attempts to taunt me by the window and I am too lazy to even lift my head to pay much attention to his pleas for play.

I have been a dutiful dog as Dad has been sick the last month with pneumonia and he has needed my company. I do get up with him when he slowly tries to do something. I mean we are talking slow like molasses with everything.

Thank goodness for Mom! She has been taking me on my walks and makes sure we get at least 45 minutes of healthy daily exercise. I still am working on my pulling issue but that comes from my Weimaraner genes.

As for the political front…

Orange pantsuit Hillary is roping off reporters and wiping servers clean with cloths…

Good Ole Bush is all about anchoring babies…

And Trump is trying to build a wall with his hair…

OK, back to being nurse dog for Dad and Mom’s walking partner because exercise with a partner is much better.

This Weather Weimaraner reports the weather as 85 in Santa Monica.  Some days it is 90 in our house so please continue to send ice cubes for snacks.

Stay cool and out of trouble people.
